GSM Arena says that phone is a WCDMA 900/2100 phone, so you are prob looking at big towns/cities where XT has 2100mhz 3G coverage

If that's the case this is not a handset for either Skinny or Telecom XT. Better not use it.

Bought a Skinny phone for my daughter so she can text me when I move to Oz next week.


Thanks, Skinny, for making it sooo cheap

Does anyone else find it extremely hard to get topups? I just educated a lady at the store on what skinny was and then showed her how to print topups for them so I could get my one for more data. Teaching one store at a time. Lol.

"intermittently"... Don't complain if it doesn't work where and when you need it to work.

Thought it was going to be fixed by now, but it hasn't.
Whoever updates the website really needs to be in less of a hurry, because its full of typos and spelling mistakes. Or at least run it via a spell checker.

On another note... there's a new 600 MB data plan for $8 a week, still the usual "you must have one of the $4 combos" applies though

Edit: Didn't see the other thread

It looks like the "full" site is now online rather than the temporary one.

Interesting; I'm still getting the new one so it wasn't taken back down. The home page looks completely different so you should be able to tell which one you're on immediately.
